And still…

 

A few dry roses, a bunch of hydrangea and a freshly picked pear combined with bright natural light were an irresistible invitation to a few shots. So camera in hand, feet a on chair (and sometimes the table!) my Saturday afternoon was spent setting the right shutter speed, looking for the right angle, waiting for the light to shine just about right where I wanted it to fall. About an hour later I had a certain idea of which photos would be on the edit list.

This time, I went for Black & White again. I wanted to achieve a poetic and enigmatic atmosphere. Although I could have used artificial light, I felt that the natural available through a large window was falling nicely on the objects to achieve that specific effect.
